CONTROL PANEL (TYPE 4)
ACA Alternating Current Ammeter
AC ammeter (ACA) gives an indication. in amperes, of
the current from each phase of the generator to the load.
Ammeter/ voltmeter selector switch (AVS) is used to
connect the ammeter to the current transformer on
phase T1, T2 or T3; see Contact Chart. Ammeters
normally have an input range from 0 to 5 amperes.
Current transformer (CT1, CT2 or CT3) causes a
reduction of the actual line current. in its respective
phase lead. to a level within the input range of the
ammeter. The ammeter is calibrated (has marks) to give
an indication of the actual current flow in one phase load
of the generator.
NOTE: Several methods have been used to
connect control panel instruments. The
recommended method is shown in the
NOTE: X gives an indication of a closed
contact. X on the line gives an indication of
"make before break."
